MOG and Samsung team up for streaming on smart TVs and Blu-ray players

Streaming music service MOG on Tuesday announced it has partnered with Samsung to offer its 12-million-song streaming catalog to owners of the latest models of Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players.

The move allows MOG to spread its brand further, following rival streaming service Pandora in moving outside of PCs and mobile phones to find new customers. Samsung’s 2010 and 2011 Smart TVs or Blu-ray players will work with the service.

Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players offer downloadable apps that add more content and abilities to those connected devices. MOG’s app will be placed in the What’s New and Lifestyle sections of the application store as a free download, but you’ll have to pay for the service to start playing your favorite tunes.

Access to MOG using Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players or its desktop app costs $4.99 a month. If you pay $9.99 a month, you can use the service via the iPhone and Android platforms as well.

MOG is one of the best streaming music services available today and competes with the likes of Spotify and Rdio for the crown of the best U.S. music service. MOG’s biggest asset is that it has best-sounding catalog, with music streaming at an enviable 320 kbps.
